French Seams

This technique is courtesy of Sandra Betzina. It assumes a seam allowance of 5/8". Unlike most other instructions on sewing a French seam, there is no trimming after the first seam pass.

Technique:

  • With WS together, sew a ¼" seam.
  • Press the seam open
  • With RS together, sew a 3/8" seam.
  • Press.
